I must look just like a fool, here in the middle of the road,
Standin' there in your rear view, gettin' soaked to the bone
This land is flat as it is mean, a man can see for a hundred miles
So I'm still prayin' I might see, the glow of a brake light

But your wheels just turn, down the road ahead
If it hurts at all, you ain't showed it yet
I keep lookin' for the slightest sign
That you might miss, what you left behind
I know there's nothin' stopping you now
But I'd settle for a slowdown

I held on longer than I should, believin' you might change your mind
And those bright lights of Hollywood, would fade in time

But your wheels just turn, down the road ahead
If it hurts at all, you ain't showed it yet
I keep lookin' for the slightest sign
That you might miss, what you left behind
I know there's nothin' stopping you now
But I'd settle for a slowdown

But your wheels just turn, down the road ahead
If it hurts at all, you ain't showed it yet
You're just a tiny dot, on that horizon line
Come on tap those brakes, baby just one time
I know there's nothin' stoppin' you now
I'm not asking you to turn back around
I'd settle for a slowdown
Come on just slowdown
I'd settle for a slowdown
